I’ve been uncharacteristically busy today. I biked to the Capitol where I had a training and biked back home. Prior to my training, I took Storm and Wicket to Day Camp, which means that the kitties are roaming free in a very calm house. For some reason, they’re way quieter than they usually are and are sleeping mostly.
I want to write about Obsidian today. He just turned 2 last Tuesday and he is the gem of all gems. I get that people say that about their animals, but he is really pure joy. He even beeps in a downward rhythm when descending the stairs. He is like an toddler who realizes that when you express air while bouncing down stairs in the house, you get fun musical accompaniments of your own volition. He loves everyone and everything. Obsidian lives to be happy.
Obsidian is very close with Zephyr, and then tend to clean and chew each other all the time. He would play with Twig, but she is the princess of the house who is mostly annoyed by everyone except for the two humans.
Obsidian never really grew much. He is teeny, tiny with a corkscrew tail. When he is on our bed, I just have to tap my chest and he jumps up to kiss my chin and nose. I love him and am so lucky to spend many days at home with him this summer.
